What to line a case with?

Post by bemusedart on Thu Apr 26, 2012 4:29 pm

I found this chess set at a yard sale across the street. It was in a case that looked just the right size to hold my paints and not be as bulky as my current scrapbooking paper box. And it was only $2. This little case is about the size of the little laptop cases and has a handle.

I got it home and realized it had these little rubber feet that prevented it from opening flat and that the lining was a flocked paper. I had to remove the lining to get to the fasteners on the feet to get them off.

The inside is now an ugly press board with staining from the glue.

I first thought about lining it with scrapbook paper, but then realized I really need something that will wipe clean easily.

Any suggestions?

If a working solution isn't available, at least I got replacement pieces for hubby's chess and checkers sets out of it. The only thing I am really out of is the time getting those stupid feet off and the $2.

What about shelf paper from the dollar store? Those are meant to be a "wipeable" surface.

I like the duct tape idea. I was wanting to get some for making a hula hoop anyway. I saw they had a hot pink tiger stripe at Micheal's the other day.

I laminated cute paper... It works well, and can be cleaned or changed out as needed!
